Most traumatic experience ever!!! This doctor is rude and has the worst bedside manners ever!!! He does not communicate effectively or empathetically, and demonstrates no interpersonal skills. He takes offense if you dare ask any questions to try and understand what he is saying. I DO NOT recommend this doctor nor his staff.

TRAUMATIC EXPERIENCE!!! – Feb 20, 2021
×Post a ResponseAre you Dr. Kashif Alvi, MD?

After lab tests were completed, his office called in a prescription to my pharmacy. It sat there for over 2 weeks until the pharmacy staff asked me about it when I was picking up another prescription. Alvi's office called in the prescription WITHOUT ever calling me, the patient, concerning my medical issue after lab tests were in. Unbelievable?? When I called Alvi (twice) & left messages, he didn't return the phone calls. I can only guess he didn't want to discuss this embarrassment & very dangerous mistake with me. I changed Urologists as soon as he didn't return my 2nd phone. Beware??

I had the Adult Circumcision with Dr. ALVI. He have done an outstanding job in performing the surgery with care and precision. I was able to heal my wound without having to take any painkillers at all. Definitely Recommend ALVI if you are looking for a good Urologist in the valley.

I had the Rezum procedure in January and have gone from nocturnally urinating 3-4 times to only one. There has been no negative effect from the procedure which is uncomfortable for a few days with the catheter. I am pleased and impressed with Dr. Alvi's care.

I saw Dr Alvi and he prescribed medication for me along with other tests he did. I started to have what I thought was a reaction to the medication. I called and had to leave message with his nurse, I never received a response, I then sent message through their "contact us" on their website and again no response. I then left another message on their website and again no response. I did see another doctor and was taken off the medication. Alvi obviously does not really care about his patients.

I was using a catheter 4-5 times a day. I could only pee a few ounces on my own. Now, after having the Greenlight procedure, I can pee normally and completely empty my bladder. The procedure only took a few hours and I was able to return home the same day, although it took a few weeks to completely recover from the procedure. I am very happy with the results!

I have seen Dr Alvi for several years, the most recent reason is for prostate cancer. PSA is now zero, the cancer is currently gone. I had HIFU(High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) of prostate that was easy. He has also removed kidney stones from me; all procedures have been easy for me to go thru

I came to see Dr Alvi, because my PSA level was high. I had a prostate biopsy that showed prostate cancer. Dr Alvi told me about HIFU(high intensity focused ultrasound)of prostate, it has been 1 and 1/2 years and I am still cancer free.

Dr. Alvi diagnosed me with prostate cancer. I chose the HIFU surgery. My PSA was over 4. After surgery my PSA is 0.1. Had surgery in the morning and back home by 1;00 pm. Was back to work after only 3 days. Didn’t have to wear pads and was able to resume my sex life after only 3 weeks. Would highly recommend Dr Alvi and HIFU for prostate cancer.

Dr Alvie performed a HIFU procedure on me in Feb 2019.It was impossible to get his staff to return our phone calls after my operation. I have had very serious problems since this procedure done by him. I have scar tissue in my uretha that causes me very much pain when I urinate. I would not recommend him to anyone

I was diagnosed with bladder cancer in Jan 2019. Dr Alvi formulated a treatment plan which I have been following since. Removed the tumor in Feb 2019. Follow by the prescribed chemo therapy. No reoccurrence since that time. Will continue quarterly monitoring.
